Re: Aft Bimini

Alan,
From what I recall it looks a lot like Dick’s boat, Beth’s father.

Re: Aft Bimini

Hi Alan,
Like that your aft Bimini extends over the rear seat and has only 3 points of support. Do you find that the one support in the back is sufficient in high cross winds? Where did you have done? I like how they did the solar panel support.

Re: Aft Bimini

Hi Expatriate

I did get a price from them some time ago after I saw some pictures you posted. Very nice indeed, but eventually I want to save some money for electronic upgrade as the E120s are really slow and the depth finder doesn’t read in shallow water.

Re: Aft Bimini

Thanks for the designs for the aft bimini. I was just out looking at the boat and I don't think I will be able to lower the cockpit bimini as planned. My other thought is to place an additional or extend the bimini about 12" and either at a lower elevation or on a slant in front of the cockpit bimin...

Aft Bimini

Looking to install an aft bimini. We keep the boat in the New Orleans area. Would appreciate any recommendation on the coverage and any pictures of existing aft bimini. I am also planning on modifying the cockpit bimini by extending it forward and lowering it a bit to provide more shade, especially ...

Alarm System

I installed an alarm system on my PDQ 34 because my previous boat, a sailboat, was broken into. The thieves did more damaged breaking into the boat then what they took. The sailboat had no alarm. The alarm I installed on the PDQ was a SimpliSafe alarm. I bought this one because it has water, smoke f...

Engine Coolant Pump

I noticed a slow leak from my coolant pump on my starboard engine. I probably loose a cup of coolant about every 15 hours of running. Can't tell if it is from the rear gasket or front bearing seal. Has anyone replaced one on the 100 Hp engine. If so was it difficult? I see there are a lot of compani...

Oil Filter for the 100 hp engines

I decided to change oil and oil filters and did not want to wait to get Yanmar oil filters. I saw a review of oil filter on YouTube and saw that NAPA filters are well constructed, Fran not so much. The cross reference for my Yanmar filter is NAPA #1334. Has anyone had any experience using a cross re...

Re: Oil type for the 100 hp engines

I emailed Yanmar about oil consumption and was told 3 quarts/100 gallon of fuel is the acceptable limit. Several mechanics told me that the valve guides were probably the source of the oil consumption. I have the 100 hp engines with about 2000 hours on them. My starboard engine uses about a cup over...

Rear side slide windows' pull/latch replacement

Has anyone had experience replacing the black rear side slide windows pull/latch? The previous owner purchased two slide window combination latch and widow pulls, but it looks like the install requires removing the window. Has anyone replaced the latches before or removed the glass? If so, I would l...

Re: Diesel Electric Hybrid power

Probably they only way it will work with electric drives and still get the same performance is with fuel cells.

Re: Oil type for the 100 hp engines

Got a reply from Yanmar. Just said that I can use SAE15/40, API CD or newer (CG/CH or even newer). I indicated the boat is being used in FL, AL, MS and LA.
